Three Plus Me is the musical gathering of three Colorado State University students.

Three Plus Me was formed in a dorm room in the winter of 2010 and is comprised of Ben Hilzer, Jake Adler, and Jayme Cole.

~Ben Hilzer (Lead Vocals, Piano, Songwriter) grew up in Castle Rock, CO. He began playing in a band in 2007 and hasn't stopped since. He also began performing in musical theater in 2010 in the Denver and Fort Collins area in various lead roles. He taught himself how to play guitar and piano and began songwriting at Three Plus Me's inception.

~Jake Adler (Drums, Guitar)

~Jayme Cole (Backup Vocals, Violin, Ukulele, Guitar, Songwriter) grew up in Pennsylvania within a musical family. He started studying classical violin at the age of four and has performed with PMEA District 9 Orchestra, the Bryn Athyns Orchestra, and the CSU Symphony. He started playing guitar, songwriting, and singing at the formation of the band and has been feverishly writing songs of all styles since that day.

Here at Three Plus Me we combine our diverse musical backgrounds to try to achieve a new, refreshing take on popular music. Powerful vocals, smooth harmonies, diverse instrumentation, and unique songwriting all help Three Plus Me to stand out from the crowd of pop musicians. We are most in our element while performing our music, we will play anywhere from a coffee shop with a handful of exhausted college students, to a street corner in old town to any that care to listen, or to a high energy crowd of three hundred CSU students participating in a charity dance-a-thon. Three Plus Me has performed at several venues across the Northern Colorado and Denver areas along with a plethora of charity events around town. We are always striving to write new songs and expand our performances for the enjoyment of our audiences. We hope to see you around town! ~Three Plus Me
